How can I recover the VAT I paid in calais on my wine champagne and beer ?

Us French have to pay the VAT in France, but you, dear British citizens, are going to consume your wine, champagne and beer in the United Kingdom, that is to say outside the EU !

You are therefore entitled to claim back the VAT you paid in France provided you can prove that you are leaving the European Union territory ....

This is where we come in. We have reached a way with customs to do this process for you.

We are here to help and provide a smooth transaction. Thinking of our British customers, we have a system to help you. And this doesn’t mean you have to be a geek. It just takes 5 minutes.

You just do your shopping as usual, fill your cart respecting the new duty-free limitations.

How much wine, beer, champagne and can I bring back in the UK from Calais?

  • Beer - 42 litres

  • Wine (not sparkling) - 18 litres ( 24 Bottles of 75 cl)

How can I get the Tax Free Form to get the VAT back after buying my wine in Calais ?

You do your shopping normally and pay for your purchases at the cash desk.

We take care of providing the tax-free voucher to claim the VAT back. We generate this Tax Free Form for you in store.

This document is certifying your purchases and the amount of VAT you can claim back. This amount will be credited to a payment card within 3 to 5 days.

The only thing you imperatively must do is to scan the barcode on the tax free form . You scan this document at the Pablo terminal located in the passenger terminal of the port of Calais or the passenger terminal at Eurotunnel.

You scan this document as it proves to the French authorities that you ...... and your wine are actually leaving the European Union.
